Low defect software development for the security industry

Praxis High Integrity Systems : 04 September, 2009  (Company News)
Praxis has appointed dedicated resource to the development of the security sector for its critical systems expertise and low defect software development
Praxis, the international specialist in critical systems engineering and assurance, has announced the appointment of Andrew Proctor as Security Business Manager. Andrew will be responsible for addressing the needs of customers in the security sector.

Praxis recognised the growing demand for ultra-low defect software and embedded software within the security sector following the success of the Tokeneer project. Commissioned by the US National Security Agency (NSA) as a demonstrator of high-assurance software applications, the system was delivered by Praxis well ahead of expectations by applying its software development philosophy and practices. The system demonstrated the possibilities of defect free highly secure software application development and execution.

This high-assurance and secure capability has a direct impact on Information Assurance (IA) applications and systems (such as encryption, access control, biometrics and secure radio) where the Praxis expertise can be used by systems developers to produce ultra-low defect output. Praxis provides high integrity, low defect software, critical systems engineering, risk assessment and consultancy to applications where security and safety are crucial. In addition to the security sector, Praxis supports air traffic management, rail, aerospace, defence and nuclear clients.

Andrew brings over 20 years experience in engineering, sales and business development to Praxis, and will be responsible for spearheading the provision of the full range of Praxis' services to the security sector.

"The Tokeneer project demonstrates that Praxis is the leader in developing and delivering ultra-low defect software to help achieve the highest levels of security and information assurance," said Andrew Proctor, Security Business Manager, Praxis. "By applying the methods and skills of safety critical engineering to security critical applications Praxis has the necessary expertise and experience to deliver solutions to national security organisations and their partners globally."

Following 11 years in the Royal Navy as a communications engineer, Andrew has since accumulated experience driving forward business growth for high technology organisations such as Spirent Communications, SGS Wireless and most recently VT Communications. Andrew is also a member of the Institute of Sales and Marketing Management and aims to apply his skills to assist with the system and security aspects of new programmes and developments in the security industry.
Mike Greenan, Director, Praxis, said: "National security has little room for error and it is vital that agencies have the correct technology in place to eliminate system vulnerabilities. We firmly believe that Andrew's arrival to the team will help us to embrace this market opportunity and grow our business in this area."
